Editors' Review

+

uTorrent is a free BitTorrent client, the Mac version (officially still in beta) of the popular, open-source uTorrent client for Windows.

Much like the lightweight uTorrent for Windows (also weighing in at less than 5MB), this version of uTorrent excels at downloading files quickly with minimal resource overhead. Even more stripped down than the Windows version, uTorrent for Mac gives you a familiar, three-pane interface, with support for multiple downloads and probably more drill-down details than you even need--including graphs, tables, and other specifics on seed, peers, pieces, and more. You can also throttle upload and download rates, and stop seeding automatically at a certain ratio. uTorrent is probably not the best client for actually finding torrents (there's just a simple search bar that takes you to results pages in your browser), and users looking for browsing and viewing features should check out more full-featured BitTorrent clients.

If you don't need a lot of extra features and you're looking for a fast BitTorrent client that requires almost no configuration, uTorrent is a solid option.

"Please don't include malwares in the installation file."

January 30, 2014  |  By Twist3r

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.8.4.29978

Pros

No need to configure, so its easy to use. Performance is excellent. Light use of resources ensures that the download process is smooth. Torrents can be found through the search option. Constantly awestruck because of its size. Its mere kb's and yet helps download gigabytes of data.

Cons

Malwares/spywares/browser hijackers found. Not a good move. Please keep it clean.

Summary

P2P file sharing is defined by utorrent. Universally accepted, it continues to dazzle even after all these years. Highly recommended for noobs & experts alike.

"Good but search bar add-on diverts searches to yahoo"

November 30, 2013  |  By bugbear77

 |  Version: uTorrent 1.8.4.29978

Pros

Easy to use down load system

Cons

Spammy search bar addon that adds yahoo to your browser

Summary

Good but need to stop with the spammy add-ons. Maybe just a few adverts instead to give them the money they need?
